yesterday I shucked a clam for the first time. today I bought six more clams and shucked them. I feel kind of bad for murdering them. It feels a little strange because they have two muscles and even when you cut one, you can tell the clam is not dead yet because the other muscle is still flexed.
Then I got a little obsessed about researching them.
Finally figured out what those clams I ate in China were called. Razor Clams.
Also, I didn't know quahog, cherrystone, and littlenecks were all the same species, just different sizes. Huh, I feel so tricked.
Look, clam babies.
Also, I did not actually know that these were scallops! Plus, they have eyes! What???!!
